Calypso Coral Lotus Blossom

It would seem I'm on a roll getting lots of new cards made.  Of course, the frigid Iowa weather has something to do with that...there is no way I'm going outside with -20 wind chills blowing in my face!  The view from my craft studio window is as close as I want to get to exposure to the elements.

For this card, I combined the sketch challenge from Mojo Monday and the color challenge from ColourQ.  I hadn't used Rich Razzleberry and Calypso Coral together that I recall and I must say that I love how they look.  And, that Sale-A-Bration Lotus Blossom Stamp Set is fast becoming another favorite, too.

Stamp Set:  Lotus Blossom; Inks:  Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry; Card Stock:  Crumb Cake, Rich Razzleberry, Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack, Whisper White; Accessories & Tools:  Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder (retired), 3/8" Old Olive Striped Organdy Ribbon (retired), Dimensionals, Glue Dots, SNAIL Adhesive, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine

The sketch is from the current Mojo Monday Challenge 379.  You can find the challenge details and more inspiration HERE.

The colors are from the current ColourQ Challenge #274.  You can find the challenge details and more inspiration HERE.
